I sat down to write a blog post for you this week and as much as I tried, I kept circling back to what’s in my heart.

So this week’s post is different in that I’m allowing myself to be raw and to be seen in a way that’s bigger and scarier than I’ve ever done before.  That’s part of being a leader in your life and your business.  Being brave, being unsure and still continuing to take steps forward.

At church last week, the service wasn’t what I’d call “typical” because the message was centered around (very) current events.  The conversation looked at the hurt and hate and fear that is heavy on everyone’s heart.

I walked away being especially touched by a Martin Luther King quote that was shared, “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

I tucked that nugget and the message from that morning away for further processing and went on with the rest of my day.

Then, I was listening to a podcast and Seth Godin was speaking about his newest book, What to Do When it’s Your Turn (and it’s Always Your Turn).  He went into the details about how great the book is, but what I loved most about what he was sharing is the fact that you can’t (easily) buy just one copy.

His purpose for creating a minimum order of three is that if you order one copy, you are likely to read it and put it away.  If you order three, you aren’t likely to read each copy so you’ll give two of them away.  He explained that when one person reads a book, the ideas and questions and thoughts stay with that person.  When three people read the book, a conversation can begin.

What could it look like if you were willing to get uncomfortable for the sake of what’s calling you?  


 

And then a post popped up in my newsfeed with Taylor Swift talking about the “Inner Mean Girl” and how we are often our own worst enemies.

So the post that I had planned for today took a back seat.

As I looked around at everything that was surrounding me – and surrounds you, too – I realized that my message for you today was to challenge you to be willing to do something differently.

You see, our greatest power is that of being willing.

I’m not asking you to agree 100% with everything that I’m sharing with you today (or any day).

Instead, I’m simply asking you to be willing.

What would it look like if you were willing to have a new conversation?  

Are you willing to come from a place of faith, trust, and love?

What if it’s possible that you can be willing to seek to understand without judgement?

Would you be willing to forgive yourself and others?

What are you willing to look at differently in your life, your business, and your relationships?

What could it look like if you were willing to get uncomfortable for the sake of what’s calling you?

 

What I’m called to do – and what you are being called to do, too – is to make a difference. To leave this world a little bit (or a lot bit) nicer than when you arrived.

Trust that and consider being willing to step more bravely towards it.

That’s where my challenge to you today comes in.  Consider these questions and get clear about where you’re no longer willing to stay quiet. To play small. To bury your head in the sand.

And then, take a small step into the uncomfortable.  Be willing to take a powerful stand for your clients, for your family, for your community, and for the impact that you are being called to make.  

It’s worth it.  You are worth it.

And now the real conversation can begin.
